Two Dudes Seafood Restaurant RS
Went for dinner on a Friday night. Had reservations but didn't need cause was not busy. Our waitress was very slow for a night when they had barely anyone in the restaurant. Seems every time we were ready to get up and find a manager she would show up. Also food service was extremely slow. One the food arrived it was very good. Not sure will be back
I came @7P waiting in my party. The place was quiet and more empty than not. I went to the bar for a single glass of wine. I was soon met by the bartender who proffered a menu and asked had I been before. (I had not). I ordered from a pleasantly comprehensive wine list and struck up a conversation where the food menu was explained and I was introduced to one of the owners. At about that time my party of 5 others arrived and we were immediately seated at a nice big round table in the middle of their main area. The selection of fish was ample. They were out of Sheepshead (BUT that’s OK because they had 15+ other fish to choose from!). Their biz model is to get 3 lbs of whatever fish there is available from several distributors that was caught that day. When they sell out; ‘Move On!’ I had the Trigger fish instead. I did not pay attention to what the others ordered. I heard no complaints. Nothing was returned to the kitchen. My Trigger was superb! My regular cole slaw (classic?, authentic? Vs. ‘mango’ was excellent. Hush puppies=👍👍👏❗️ The wine by the bottle menu had a robust selection and were fairly priced. Service was friendly and prompt. I WANT TO SEE THIS PLAC THRIVE in the neighborhood. We will return.
My friends that ordered the Crab Cakes commented they were the Best they had ever had period!!
Calamari appetizer was very good and seemed Fresh, so I was surprised,
A very good place!!!
Great food! Love Barbara. Good experience except for very loud drunk guy at the bar. BTW, best coleslaw I have ever had!!
The seafood is always great! That’s why we return!
Fresh catch of the day is awesome.
The scallops are my fav! Everything is so good and everyone is always so nice. So glad they opened a location close to us!
This was my first visit and it was amazing from start to finish. The staff was top notch and the seafood was fresh and well seasoned. I really love seafood and it was perfect. I work downtown and will definitely make it my go to for seafood! Excellent job guys!!!
Delicious food! Great service and best seafood in Jacksonville
Always excellent fresh seafood and great service too
Fresh local seafood out of Mayport. Fresh quality ingredients. Amazing cocktails. Friendly owners who care about your dining experience.
Service was very good and the food was good, but not quite as good as the first time we visited. I enjoy the surfing films on the big screen.
Best seafood restaurant in the Riverside area of Jacksonville, FL. Nice relaxed environment, friendly/helpful staff, freshly cooked Fish and shellfish options.
Upon entering the mother of the owners welcomed us with a smile and warmth and gave us a nice booth and then our waiter Phillip came to serve us and from that moment on our dining experience was the best ever for he was knowledgeable of the items to order and we took his suggestions from appetizers to dessert and then one of the owners, Jenny, stopped to thx us for coming...I recommend this place to all💜
Great food a d selection. Byron was an awesome server amd made great recommendations.
Service was probably the best thing and wait staff was 1. We were a table of five. Restaurant was almost completely empty. Floor was very sticky... Breading was too much - very hard and thick. Shredded chicken tacos were not flavorful and greasy. Scallops seemed huge when they came out but it was due to the breading. Positive- fries were amazing. Nachos were very good and salad lol was fresh with large blackened shrimp which were cooked well. My daughter did not like tacos so waiter was gracious and removed from bill. No one else complained about food but let most on plate and did not request to go containers. Just a little disappointed based on the terrific reviews
Great selection of fresh seafood. The scallops were cooked to perfection. And the wasabi slaw was a great change of pace and wonderful addition to the meal. Everyone at the table enjoyed everything about the food and location. We will definitely return again soon.
Our first visit. Food and service outstanding. We will be back and bring more friends.
The food was very good however the wait staff was not so good.
Pretty empty when we went. Food was great! Service was fine.
The food was very good. The mango wasabi slaw was phenomenal. And if you don’t try the coconut cake you will missing the best!!
Too many other places that serve the same cuisine. The staff is surly and inattentive. Always seem like they try to run the front on razor thin staffing. I’d probably go back with my expectations reset.
My waiter was very awesome and served great service but the food was very unseasoned. The drinks are great as well but the food isn’t so pleasant. I’ll return for drinks only not the food
First, the hostess was outside watching a guy who hadn’t paid and getting seated was frustrating. Service was lacking, my seared raw tuna was inedible. Vegetables were mush. The cooked trigger was actually very good. No drink refills during the meal, no desert menu or offer of desert. Too many good places around to go back to this one
Went on Saturday night so service was a little slow but the food was excellent. I had trigger fish which was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. I also had the mango slaw which I enjoyed. My companion enjoyed his dinner as well.
The seafood cob salad was so fresh and delicious!
The food was excellent, the maitre de was exceptional, the server was very friendly and accomodating. The only problem was that the food was VERY SLOW coming out of the kitchen.
Amazing service! Ali was a very professional and knowledgeable bartender. She really took care of us
Fabulous food and service
The seafood was really good; however, the sides were not tasty at all.
I would recommend the Crab cake ... Although it had some shells in it ... It was absolutely delicious and it's priced just right.
Food was good but not great.
They need to get rid of the dirty surfboards blocking the kitchen. It looks ridiculous and lazy.
They don’t have all the beers on tap that are on the menu. Some days they won’t have half the food on the menu.
Playing country music at a riverside restaurant is a bad idea.
It smelled like a cheap seafood market.
We met friends so we were interested in sitting back and enjoying our conversation before ordering. Our waitress was attentive without hovering and without making us feel rushed. I ordered the Mayoort shrimp which was excellent. It was lightly breaded and the portion was more than ample. The fried twice back potatoes were a real treat! I took home as much as I ate. The restaurant was not crowded even for a week night and we were there on a Saturday night. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Had an awesome time and learned what a “goofy foot” is.
Great food at a good price!
Our first time to Two Dudes was outstanding. Fish was very fresh and delicious. We were surprised that there is actually an excellent wine list (and very reasonable prices) along with a good selection of local craft beer. We will definitely be back!
Took an out-of-town visitor—entire group was satisfied with our meals. Unfortunately, they ran out of Mayport shrimp; however, the delicious crab cakes made up for that. Delicious.... will definitely return!
So awful. We were never greeted or served. We had to get our own menus from the hostess stand (which was unattended) and then no one came to our table. Finally after 15 minutes we left because no one came to us. Won't go back there.
Everything we ate was absolutely delicious! Our server was very friendly, and very knowledgeable. Having never been there before, we had lots of questions, and she had all the answers.
Went on a Saturday a couple of weeks ago, and had a great experience. When we got there, it wasn't very busy, so we were a little worried... It turned out the food was great, the service was excellent (Madelyn was terrific) and we had an enjoyable evening. Their location on Atlantic is great too, but we're glad to see a fresh seafood joint closer to the downtown area. Go support them!
The food was good. Many fresh choices. We especially liked the chowder, the fried baked potato, and the wasabi slaw. We look forward to trying another location.
I was very please with the selection to choice different seafood.
The mango wabashi coleslaw is good and tasty (spicy)
